- Extended battery life for users of mobile computers such as laptops, netbooks and tablets.
- Reduced energy consumption to reduce cost of IT.
Here, we meet*Mark Aggar, a Director*in the Environmental Sustainability organization at Microsoft. The goal of the conversation is to get some insights into what energy efficient computing means and why it matters. Further, since Channel 9 is a comfortable place for developers, we discuss the relationship between developing Windows applications that work in concert with Windows Power Management to use energy resources effectively and efficiently.
In some sense, energy efficient computing, like trustworthy computing and security, is a journey that will continually evolve over time. The concept of "Energy smart software" has only recently hit the mainstream. Of course, in the IT world, system administrators are always trying to maximize energy efficiency in large datacenters.
